1B,DH - HOU - MiLB
Matijevic broke a scoreless tie with the Yankees in the 7th inning. Houston would go on to win 3-0, as Matijevic finished 1-for-3 with the solo home run.
It was Matijevic' second career home run. He took Gerrit Cole deep with two outs in the 7th, and that would be all of the offense Houston needed. Cristian Javier, Hector Neris and Ryan Pressly tossed a combined no-hitter. Matijevic simply does not earn enough playing time to warrant fantasy attention outside DFS dart throws.
Astros rookie outfielder J.J. Matijevic made just his sixth career MLB appearance Sunday, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-3 win over the White Sox.
The rookie's home run was a bit of a cheap one, traveling just 343 feet. But, they all count the same in the box score. The home run was Matijevic' first career base hit as well, making Father's Day a special day for him and his dad, which he talked about afterward. The left fielder is not likely to see many at-bats this season and should not be considered worthy of fantasy attention.
